Last year, Lauren Thompson’s holiday book, The Christmas Magic, let us in on one of Santa’s little secrets: Santa gets a “tingling in his whiskers” when the Christmas magic is on its way. I believe that the tingling has begun. Perhaps even a little jingling, too!
From nicely illustrated carols to tales for the naughty and nice, our holiday gift to you is this list of wonderful Christmas books.
“It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.” ~ W. T. Ellis
Families thrive on special moments and memories, the kind that are shared and made together. Creating family traditions is an important part of a child’s life, helping them to feel connected and important. One of the most simplest family traditions is reading a book together. Many families enjoy reading the same Christmas books each year to announce the arrival of the “Christmas Spirit”; others enjoy the act of introducing a new holiday tale to their library each year; and even more magical is choosing a holiday book to donate to a child in need, because after all … the holiday season is about giving.
Christmas is a special time and calls for special stories. I am sure you will find the magic you are looking for in these wonderful books.
